It would also appear likely, from the close similarity between the C N and the C O double bond, that the reactions
of 2-azaallyllithium compounds with carbonyl compounds,
which leads to open-chain hydroxy azomethines 171, are
also initiated by a concerted 4;c + 2x cycloaddition and
therefore proceed via a 1,3-oxazolidine-lithium compound.

We have now found that benzeneazomethane ( l a ) undergoes extensive (>88 %) metalation to the hitherto unknown orange-red compound benzeneazomethyllithium (2)
on treatment with 1.1 mol. equiv. of n-butyllithium in
THF/n-hexane (ca. 9 :1) a t -70 "C(61; moreover, the anion
of ( 2 ) , 1,2-diazaallyl anion, is able to add to the anglestrained olefinic double bond of acenaphthylene (according
to (C)). Addition of water t o the reaction mixture yielded
the hydrolysis product /5)[71 of the cycloadduct (4);
treatment with ethyl bromide instead of water gave the dehydrogenation product ( 6 ) (for reaction conditions and
yields, see Table).
A corresponding cycloaddition did not occur with the 1,2bisazaallyllithium compound (3), which is obtained almost
quantitatively as a n orange-red solution (THFln-hexane,
ca. 5 :1) o n reaction of benzaldehyde phenylhydrazone and
one mol. equiv. of n-butyllithium a t -70°C. This finding,
together with the fact that neither (2) nor ( 3 ) could be induced to add to styrene, trans-stilbene, or tolan, confirms
the prediction that 1,2-diazaallyllithium compounds are
less prone t o 3 + 2 cycloaddition than 2-azaallyllithium
compounds (21.
Addition of benzeneazomethyllithium to carbonyl conipounds (see Table) leads - possibly via a n unstable
